If you live in the DC area and are looking to do some home shopping this weekend for a good cause, please stop by The Washington Design Center Sample Sale.  It is "the region’s most extensive and luxurious collection of home furnishings at a deep discount. the sample sale is an opportunity to shop hundreds of high-end items including furniture, rugs, lighting, art and accessories at up to 75% off. Admission is $5, benefiting pediatric oncology programs at the Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center"  and takes place at the Washington Design Center 300 D St, SW.  Open Saturday 10am-3pm.  

I would love love love love to go to this, but I will be at Georgetown working with some of those pediatric patients.  Maybe I could call in sick?
